The Medieval England Maritime Project (MEMP) aims to make available bibliography, primary sources, and interpretative analysis on maritime trade, shipping, mariners, and coastal communities in England, c. 700 to 1520, with occasional forays into the maritime worlds of medieval Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. The Project is especially focused on employing digital tools to explore the wider medieval maritime world.
